Theo Campbell's spokesperson told OK! magazine of the accident: “Theo was on holiday in Ibiza enjoying himself when someone popped a bottle of Champagne and the cork flew into his eye.

"People were screaming when they realised what happened and saw the state of his eye. One of the guys said it looked like his eye had exploded.

"Theo was taken to hospital and we haven't heard from him since. Kaz flew out to see him and will be staying with him until he's able to leave and go back to England."
